At that time, when the human world is more comfortable that the heavens and when men will live for eighty-four thousand years, all the 'Sakras, Brahmaas, Suyamas, Santu.sitas and Sunirmitas, all the brahmanaas and devas of the ten thousand universes which surround this fortunate galaxy (Mangul-Sakvala) of ours, will gather and approach Bodhisattva Maitreya living in the Tusita heaven and invite him as follows:

'O Great Lord, now is the time for you to become a Buddha.'

Then the great bodhisattva [will say]: 'Time, country, continent, family and mother; having observed these five, the buddhas will be born.'
